Industrial property vet returns to Colliers fold

Wilson Ang leaves Cambridge Industrial Trust Management

VETERAN industrial property consultant and former CEO of Cambridge Industrial Trust Management Wilson Ang has returned to Colliers International.

He has been appointed consultant for industrial property investment in Asia. Based in Singapore, he will be part of the Asia Industrial Services team.

His immediate focus is Greater China and India, advising building owners, private investors and funds and institutions on their real estate portfolios and helping meet their requirements across Asia, Colliers said yesterday.

Mr Ang was with Colliers for 13 years and was executive director and head of the industrial sales and leasing division when he left in 2005. During those years he was responsible for more than $1 billion of industrial investment sales.

He went on to co-found Cambridge Industrial Trust and put together a portfolio of industrial properties for its listing.

He also took the trust through the listing process and managed it post-float.

He left as Cambridge's manager last year.

Dennis Yeo, managing director of Colliers International Asia Industrial Services and Colliers International Singapore, says: 'Given Wilson's wealth of experience and strong track record in the industrial market, he will further strengthen Colliers' position ... and grow our industrial investment business.'

Mr Yeo said Mr Ang's experience as an industrial property broker, advising owners and real estate investment trusts, coupled with his experience at Cambridge, mean his services will be sought after in Greater China and India, where the Reit industry is still in its infancy.

Mr Ang, 45, has a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in estate management from National University of Singapore.

The former Catholic High School student lists playing golf, swimming and working out at the gym and spending time with his family as his hobbies.
